Featured in the I.T. Crowd episode ‘Calamity Jen’, the Emergency Services Advert has a music composed by Neil Hannon. As the theme music, it features Neil’s voice over an electronic music singing the number: 0118 999 881 999 119 7253.

The idea and the music are very similar to the ‘Priest Chatback’ advert in the Father Ted Christmas special.
